Dry Creek

2017 Dry Creek Valley
HERITAGE VINES

Zinfandel

91 Wine Spectator

Dry Creek Vineyard is one of the few remaining family-owned wineries in California. With more than 45 years of grape growing and winemaking experience, their efforts continue to focus on the quality of wine in the bottle. When founder David Stare started Dry Creek Vineyard, he began the winery with a single-minded effort to offer the highest quality wine possible at a reasonable price. Mission accomplished!

From Wine Spectator: Briary and vibrant, with zesty raspberry, toasted sage and cracked pepper flavors that take on richness toward polished tannin's.
 
 
Mt. Difficulty

2014 Central Otago

Pinot Gris

Was $24

NOW 50% OFF!

 

This is next level Pinot Gris from New Zealand at half the price! There is a reason at 5 years old this wine is still vibrant and delicious.
All wines that carry the Bannockburn label are subject to two strict criteria: they have to be sourced from vineyards situated in a very specific area – Bannockburn, south of the Kawarau River – and they are to be managed by the Mt. Difficulty viticulture team. The reasons for these self-imposed constraints is this is an area with very special qualities for growing grapes, and that the management of the vineyard is reflected in the quality of the ultimate product. Medium-bodied, refreshing acidity with a slight hint of sweetness and generous fruit. A perfect summer wine that will pair well with Sushi, Pad Thai, roasted chicken salad and a host of other great dishes as this wine is extremely versatile.

Giulia Negri

2016 Langhe

Nebbiolo

Taking over a well-established Barolo estate at the tender age of 24 is an incredibly daunting prospect, but for Giulia Negri, the latest in a 150-year line of grape growers in the Langhe commune of La Morra, the challenge proved irresistible.
Barologirl, as she has become known, may still be the new kid on the block in La Morra, but tasting her wines reveals a fine touch and devout respect for tradition that already places her wines among the region’s classics.
Supple, perfumed, rife with high-toned fruit and flowers—a delightfully tasty introduction to the house style. Organic.

Pago de los Capellanes

2017 Ribera del Duero
Joven Roble

Tempranillo

Founded in 1996 in Pedrosa de Duero, in the province of Burgos, this was the Rodero Villa family's first wine growing venture and was recently announced as one of the 100 top wineries in the world by Wine & Spirits magazine.
Made with the native Tempranillo variety, characterised by the thick skin that protects the fruit from extreme local conditions and produces intense wines in terms of colour, structure and tannin content.
Clean and brilliant cherry colour, with an intense floral and red forest fruits aroma, together with light spicy hints. In the mouth it is full-bodied, fresh, persistent and velvety.

Domaine Trotereau

2017
QUINCY

Sauvignon Blanc

 

The small, historic Quincy appellation is experiencing a revival! Once highly esteemed, its unparalleled Sauvignon Blancs are now returning to the spotlight after decades spent in the shadow of Sancerre, its northerly neighbor. You’ll appreciate the distinctive flavor profile: born from warmer soils, it tastes of ripe, succulent citrus devoid of grassiness, while boasting the same flinty nerve as a good Sancerre. The snappy finish beckons a refill just as the reasonable bottle price will have you coming back for more. 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

 

Chateau Cantenac Brown

2012 Margaux

Bordeaux

93 Wine Spectator

$55 and up elsewhere!

Awesome price on one of the better 2012's. The structure is remarkable showing seamless integration through the long finish.
The wine produced here was classified as one of fourteen Troisièmes Crus (Third Growths) in the historic Bordeaux wine official classification of 1855.
From Wine Spectator: This red offers beguiling aromas of bergamot, roasted sandalwood and black tea, before giving way to a well-endowed core of plum, blackberry and raspberry reduction notes. The structure is remarkably fine-grained, showing seamless integration through the long finish. A really great showing.
Lowest price you will find on this delicious 2012 that still has a ton of life left in it!

Nortico

2018 Vinho Regional Minho

Alvarinho

Ask anyone for the best Alvarinho in Portugal, and people will point to the extreme north to the subregion of Monção and Melgaço, right on the border with Spain. Nortico is from tiny vineyard plots in Monção and Melgaço. Vines were planted between 1910 and 2005 in granite soil at the south bank of the Minho River.
Nortico Alvarinho is a superb example of the grape's hallmarks: fresh citrus, peach and tropical fruit aromas paired with clean, juicy fruit and vibrant minerality. This is a terrific seafood wine, particularly with salty, fattier dishes like fish tacos or broiled oysters.
This Portuguese Albarino is a super crisp, mouthwatering white! Perfect for the warm days of summer.

 
 

Paradise Ridge

2015 Sonoma County
ROCKPILE

Cabernet Sauvignon

One of only 2 wineries completely destroyed in the 2017 fires. Thankfully some of their inventory was in a seperate facility! Additionally their vineyards were also spared. They vowed to open the winery and tasting room again and that may happen as early as this Fall. If visiting in the Fall or next year in Sonoma be sure to visit their new facility to welcome them back from an extremely difficult time.

This is a beautiful Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and packed with black fruits and menthol layers, Deep, complex aromas of dark berry, graphite and light cedary oak make for a compelling red, offering a wine of depth and dimension, structure and refinement.

Greywacke

2016 Marlborough

Pinot Noir

91 Wine Advocate

A deliciously fragrant Marlborough Pinot – juicy blackberries, blueberries and the sweet aroma of homemade strawberry jam, intermingled with more savoury suggestions of black olives, cedar and a hint of lavender. The ethereal but finely structured palate has concentrated varietal character that combines red and black fruit with earthy, smoky nuances.
Greywacke is the Marlborough label of Kevin Judd, and the fulfilment of a long held dream. The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley for their first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura, named in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils of the vineyard.
 

A & G Fantino

2013 Barolo
RISERVA

Cascina Dardi

95 Wine Advocate

 
Without a doubt one of the best Barolos I have tasted all year. The wine is seamless, it has incredible depth all wrapped around a beautiful elegance. Barolos from Bussia tend to have deep color and rich fruit and while they don’t lack the classic tannic structure of Nebbiolo from this part of the world, they are not nearly as hard as the Barolos from the southside of Monforte or from Serralunga. This fact does not preclude the Fantino Baroli from aging but makes them delightfully approachable relatively young.
From Wine Advocate: This is a terrific wine that absolutely stands out in a crowd. The 2013 Barolo Riserva Bussia Cascina Dardi is a studied and careful Nebbiolo that shows delightful intensity, with precision, balance and sharpness, and an equally generous mouthfeel. That clarity of aromas is impressive. You get wild berry, pressed rose, black licorice and polished river stone. This wine ages in oak for 48 months. With only 6,000 bottles made, this wine is worth seeking out.

Bodegas Breca

2015 Calatayud
BREGA

Garnacha

93+ Jeb Dunnuck

 

Brian just returned from Spain and this, among many, was one of the highlights on the trip. There will be more new Spanish finds coming down the road.
From Jeb Dunnuck: The top wine, made in tiny quantities, the 2015 Brega comes from the oldest vineyards of the estate (both planted prior to 1911) and is 100% Garnacha brought up all in a mix of new, once- and twice-used barrels. This ripe, incredibly sexy red boasts a deep purple/plum color to go with gorgeous notes of black cherries, chocolate, graphite, and a mineral/scrub brush-like character that develops with time in the glass. Concentrated, fresh, nicely structured, and long, it will benefit from a year or two of bottle age and drink nicely for a decade or more. ~Brian's Top Pick~

 

La Vignette

2018 Touraine
